I have missed TN a lot, and now I'm finally back. After 4 years I was able to go to Brazil for a very nice stay that really recharged my batteries. I missed posting and commenting, I missed TN, and now I'm finally back.
I visited my grandmother's farm and saw so many wild life like this Red-legged Seriema, I'll be posting more pictures from my travel to Brazil.

Red-legged Seriema (Cariama cristata)


The Red-legged Seriema inhabits grasslands from Brazil south of the Amazon to Uruguay and northern Argentina. The area over which it occurs is estimated at 5.9 million km², though the bird is not found everywhere in this region of course. The species is absent from the Mata Atlântica and planalto uplands along the coast of Brazil

Hello Everton
A great surprise to see you back. I'm very glad that a few other old friends came back these days. Welcome!!!
Beautiful photo of this Red-legged Seriema in it's natural environment. Good sharpness, details and POV. Maybe a little bit extra contrast or saturation in the bird is possible. Very good composition.
Hope to see a lot more from one of my favorite countries, Brazil.
TFS and regards,

Hello Everton

Hi Everton

What a strange looking bird, I havn't seen anything like it before. Must be a first on TN I think. The background is a bit busy, but TFS anyway.
